TRAINING AND EDUCATION
The Steel Foundation believes that a highly trained, skilled and educated workforce is essential to meet the challenges of the 21st century. For managers to succeed in today's ever-changing business environment they must have a well-rounded technical knowledge, a thorough understanding of general business practices, and formal training in basic leadership and management skills.
The Steel Foundation is working with the steel industry to develop and offer timely, practical, industry focused training and education programs, utilizing the best instructors available. These programs are affordably priced and conveniently scheduled at state-of-the-art conference facilities. Designed primarily for supervisors and middle managers, these programs are appropriate for salaried personnel working in areas such as plant operations, maintenance, engineering, quality assurance, safety, finance, sales, marketing and administration. These programs are also of value to steel industry contractors and suppliers.

Innovative ideas must come from the new generation of students. Accordingly, the Foundation awards college scholarships, available in the United States and Canada, to provide these students a helping hand. In fact, over $50,000 is allotted annually for undergraduate students. Most awards are renewable for four years of education. Applications are currently being accepted for the 2000-2001 academic year.
Also, AISE has established memorial funds for annual grants to students at Carnegie Mellon University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Pennsylvania, and Rose Hulman Institute of Technology. Please contact these schools for additional information.
